LOC: Elan Valley, Rhayader, Powys
PAY: Travel expenses can be claimed

Elan Links is a Heritage Lottery funded scheme which aims to secure the heritage and boost the opportunities available in the Elan Valley for the future.

Oral History Transcriber Making the stories and memories of people who live, work and visit this unique place accessible requires a hard copy of what was said during the oral history as well as the recording. We need people who can use a word processor (not fast but accurately) to proof read, format and edit recordings to create an accurate record of what was said during interviews. Training on the easy-to-use Speechmatics system and all necessary equipment is available. This is an ongoing opportunity over the life of the project (Dec 2020) so it could take up as much or as little time as you can commit whenever you can do it.

Oral History Recorder Oral histories are a vital part of this project full of local social and historic interest and you get to meet some fascinating people. We need to capture the stories and memories of people who love this unique place whether they live or work here, have a family connection or are just visiting. In order to do this, we need help recording. This isn’t as scary as it sounds as the equipment is easy to use and you will be fully trained to use it. Time commitment is flexible and depends on how much you can spare to the project. For more information, contact Stephanie 01597 811527.
